The Giant Pizza Challenge is coming to Evansville

We have seen many food challenges arise in the region, but this is the one I want to be the first to tackle.

A very well known fact about me is that I love food, especially Italian food. Another lesser known fact about me is that I’m obsessed with Cicis Pizza. I used to skip classes in college with my friend Dayne all the time just to go to Cici’s and eat as much pizza as I could… don’t skip classes, kids. Class is important…


Cicis has offices across the country. They offer an excellent salad bar, pizza, pasta and dessert buffet at a great price. Many places across the country also have something else to offer customers that have always intrigued me. They have the Cicis Pizza Challenge. There are so many food challenges out there, even in the Evansville area, that make you say “I could do that”. However, this challenge is one I’ve wanted to try for a long time, it was just never available on the Evansville site…until now.

What is the Cicis Pizza Challenge?

Do you think you and a friend can eat a 28 inch pizza in an hour? Sounds easy, but this challenge might be harder than it looks. However, I am up for the challenge and my partner and I are ready to give it a try. Registration will begin February 12 in Cicis on Green River Road. A draw will take place each week to determine the candidates. Ballots will be emptied at the end of each month. Teams will have 24 hours to respond and pay the $50 non-refundable submission fee once called or we will move on to the next team. $300 cash prize for the team that completes the challenge.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Evansville Cicis Pizza Challenge:

  • Teams are made up of two hungry pizza lovers.
  • You have one hour to eat a whole 28-inch pizza with one topping.
  • In addition, teams will have to drink two large glasses without ice.
  • Teams cannot leave the table, stand up or vomit.
  • If you and your partner complete the challenge, you’ll win $300 cash!

Do you think you have what it takes to meet this challenge? I’m more than ready to give it a try and take that money home! Get ready, Cicis… I’m coming for you!
